As the 2022 Legislative session begins, my goal is to keep everyone updated on my actions as I work hard for the Association.
I recently returned from Charleston. While there, I was able to network with numerous Delegates and Senators to gain support. My immediate agenda is to meet as many of them as possible to get the help that we need. This will ensure help with trying to secure a $20,000.00 pay increase as well as a $5,000 payment from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) for our contributions during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Delegates were provided with a handout comprised of statistics and information that is pertinent to our Association, it’s future and the future of the West Virginia State Police. Attached to this email you will find the original PowerPoint presentation the handout included.
Join me as we pursue a better future for the West Virginia State Police and its men and woman in uniform. Your dedication is unsurmountable and should be recognized.
As your President, I am dedicated to each member individually as well as an Association. My cell phone number is 304.871.6969. Please reach out, give me your opinions, questions, and concerns.
Jeffery S. Chumley, President
